What to Do if Your Family Member Was Arrested and Is Being Held at Cache County Jail

Salt Lake City criminal lawyer

Not everyone in jail has been convicted of a crime. Many are simply being held in custody while awaiting trial, and are eligible to be released on bail. Utah’s Constitution states that, with the exception of aggravated murder, all criminal offenses qualify for bail – even serious felonies like burglary and sexual assault.

It also provides some useful contact information for bail bond companies local to the Cache County area.

How Do You Bail Someone Out of the Cache County Jail?

Bail acts like collateral, guaranteeing a detainee’s release on the condition that he or she pledges to return for each scheduled court hearing. If the defendant is later found not guilty, or acquitted, the bail money will be refunded as long as the defendant did not violate the conditions of bail or fail to appear in court, which is called skipping bail or bail jumping. If a defendant fails to appear in court, not only do they forfeit bail – they can also be charged with a misdemeanor or even a felony. In light of these harsh consequences, it is extremely important to make sure your loved one attends all required court appearances after being bailed out.

You can bail a detainee out of the Cache County Jail by visiting the jail in person. Be sure to come prepared with a government ID, such as a state ID or passport. To make sure the procedure goes as smoothly as possible, take a few minutes to read up on Cache County Jail policies before you get into your car.

The Cache County Jail is located at the following address:

1225 West 200 North (Valley View)
Logan, Utah 84321

There are three ways to contact the Cache County Jail:

  • Call the jail at (435) 755-1200.
  • Email Lieutenant Doyle Peck by using the contact form on the Cache County Jail website.
  • Visit the jail during the hours of 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

If the initial bail amount is too expensive, don’t give up hope. The Utah and U.S. Constitutions both forbid “excessive” bail, and it may be possible to dramatically lower the bail amount through a bail reduction hearing. If your loved one is not a flight risk or a danger to public safety, and can demonstrate ties to the local community, he or she may even qualify for cost-free bail called “Release on Recognizance” (ROR). All ROR requires is a signature, and compliance with certain conditions – no payment is necessary.

If your loved one’s bail cannot be reduced, and he or she does not qualify for ROR, a bail bond company might be another option worth considering. To describe the process simply, the bail company will front the money for your loved one to be released after you pay a small portion of the overall bail amount, generally 10% to 15%.

While you only have to pay a fraction of the cost to the bond company, you also assume financial liability if the defendant fails to appear in court, which means the company can sue you and come after your assets. Additionally, the 10% to 15% fee will never be returned to you – even if your loved one ends up being found not guilty. If you feel comfortable with this type of arrangement, a bail bond service may be an ideal option.

It’s important to emphasize that bailable doesn’t always mean bondable. Certain offenses are bailable on a cash-only basis, which means you must pay the full bail amount in cash and cannot use a bondsman.
